For a few weeks I've been playing Attila, and I've had a great time! It is really a great game, set in awesome historic setting, with great atmosphere dark and grim - hordes migrating to avoid harsh climate or just being displaced by other nomadic people, it is truly brilliant game!!!
So far, I have played two times with ERE (1st time giving land to tribes, to defend me against pesky Huns and rasing from them levies, 2nd time paying tribute to Huns and destroying other tribes and at end of campaginI managed to destroy Huns ( tho I was eligible for DV, I was not getting DV at end screen, only cultural one, does anyone have idea why divine did not fire, even tho I have completed everything?) once with Picts and ocne with Huns. After completing with said factions, I wanted try with Venedians, since they have awesome set of traits, together with Slavic ones.
Slavic: Immunity from snow attrition Zero colonisation cost 50% discount for all main settlement buildings
Venedians: Venedian farms carry no negative effects (squalor/public order) +100% income from farms -50% income from commerce, industry and culture
My plan was, to befriend Huns, pay them with farm profits to destroy and raze settlements of other nations while I colonise what is left behind. On paper - as an idea, It sounded like easy and calm run compared to ERE campaign, but it was not. First two times I was quickly invaded by three neighbours, some other time by Roxlanians(?) or some other nomads who came and wrecked me... A little bit frustrated, (since Venedians are labeled as normal and I was having harder time then with ERE) I decided to google some guide (sad/shame I know) for Venedians, to help me along.
Sadly I did not find guide, but I have found reports that Venedians traits do not work. Some report that only first lvl farmstead gives you bonus to income and -50% income from commerce, industry and culture does not.
tldr read here, this is topic, the other is just flavour Is Venedian trait bug fixed? As far I can see, first trait does work (Farms do not give negative effects).
